Welcome to episode 72 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I’ll be talking about the Royal Hawaiian Boys’ album, “Hawaiian Time Vol. 3: Christmas In Hawaii.”

Royal Hawaiian Boys - Christmas In Hawaii

I’m in a rush to get this out so I won’t have much to say here. My 2022 was awful. I gave a friend this analogy: Years ago, we saw Lebron James play in the high school championships, right before he joined the NBA. It was literally like watching a top NBA star playing against high school kids. In terms of awfulness, that’s how 2022 was in comparison to 2020 and ’21 for me. This year’s keeping the trend going, so I’m a little behind schedule.

That said, I hope you enjoyed learning about the Royal Hawaiian Boys and Poss Miyazaki. There’s plenty of Hawiian-style Japanese Christmas music out there, so you’ll be hearing more like it eventually. Join me back here next week for Riichi Maki’s “New Sounds Of Christmas.” I had to overcome all sorts of obstacles to finally get a copy, but the end result was worth it, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy hearing it.

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
